You must be a member of the Indiana Bead Society to enter.
Select a piece of art - painting, sculpture, literature, a child's finger painting - that inspires you. Create something with beads based on that piece of art. It could be a literal interpretation or something based on how it makes you feel. Bring a copy of the original art (a picture of it or the actual piece if you're fortunate enough to own it) to the challenge so that we can see your inspiration. Finished piece must be at least 50% beads.
